“surprises”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Went here and sat in for a dinner.Had a bowl of home made soup (and it was home made) with a roll and butter--proper British butter served at spreading temperature and not rock hard as it is at some establishments.Followed this with fish,chips and mushy peas--proper 'soaked overnight' mushy peas and not the tinned version you often get.Two slices of brad with butter--same comments about the butter as before.Ended it all with a beautiful cup of coffee--not the 'instant' which you're usually served.

The best surprise of all was still to come;paying the bill.This real feast with everything just right cost the princely sum of £6.40.No further comments are needed.

Reviewed November 24, 2012

visited yesterday after reading t c,s review.at 1.30pm on friday it was empty and i had the special all day menu.served by an attractive and very attentive waitress,dont know her name but wish i had asked for her number.homemade lentil soup was excellent.fish and chips poor.batter wasnt cooked properly and was quite doughy.other table that was occupied left half there fish too so for probably same reason.average chip shop with excellent prices and great waitress.pity about the fish.as for being empty,maybe the locals know more than us.
